Ask Colin: Flowers & Décor


What is a new and fun alternative for leaving the reception? The Country Club we are marrying at does not allow Sparklers.

For a fabulous wedding send-off without the fire hazard, here are a few creative ideas, both traditional and new:

  • Have guests toss flower petals or biodegradable confetti.
  • Provide guests with bottles of bubbles to blow as you leave.
  • Hand out ribbon wands or pom-poms in your wedding colors for guests to shake and wave.
  • Give guests bells to “ring in” your new life together.
